Book Worm Friday – Thumb Thumb Series – Tulika’s Thumbprint Books
In ‘Where is Thangi’, Thambi goes around asking where Thangi is? All the while, Thangi is right behind him, trying to suppress a giggle. Just like the little one turning the pages!
The colours are bright and the pages uncluttered. Small in size, low in word count, they are not intimidating in the least. Which is important when it comes to little ones taking tentative steps to reading by themselves. The last page has the affirmation ‘I CAN READ THIS BOOK!’ – a cue for young readers to celebrate their success.
And here is something readers of this blog will love – the series has illustrations created with thumbprints! At the end of the book, the reader is invited to draw a picture with his/her own thumbprint.
There are ten books in all. It is tough to pick favourites, they are all so cute! But one doesn’t have to pick favorites, considering each book costs only forty five rupees. What? You are still here? Go on, buy a few. You will not regret it, I assure you.
